Back in January, financial news site MarketWatch wrote an article suggesting people should have saved twice their salary by the time they reach 35 years old. The article popped up again on Twitter recently, but with most millennials only able to dream of such savings, the scathing responses were as predictable as they were hilarious.

Plenty sarcastically pointed out the difference in financial opportunity available to millennials compared with baby boomers, while another user appeared confused by the concept of these new-fangled “salaries,” assuming them to be something to do with Pokémon.

Others took it to the next level, putting their own spin on the article and offering their own life-goals to hit by 35, and thus a meme is born.
